03.06. – 04.06. / Mixing Plant


An interdisciplinary melting pot — a place for showing, for informal exchange, but also a testing ground, a shared workbench and a hub — the ThinkHalle is for everyone who enjoys experimentation. 

During the opening weekend, from the 3rd till the 4th of June, tech-savvy artists, creative makers and tinkerers will move into the foyer of the mixing plant and bring unique prototypes with them. Following the festival theme “Hypernatural Forces”, they will explore and develop cross-border journeys between speculation and function, technology and material, the now and the near future, in dialogue with the visitors. From real-time simulations of planetary infrastructures to birdsong, from plasma sculptures to prostheses that bridge the gap between humans and bats — the pool of ideas is well filled. Everyone is invited to participate, talk, think or even just to watch. We are looking forward to works by: Marine Lemarié and Nicolas Stephan, Leon Eckard, Fara Peluso and Kat Austen, Charlotte Triebus and many more.

03.03.2023 – 18:00 – 21:00

Opening hours:

04.03 – 05.03.2023 - 15:00 – 18:00 18.03 – 19.03.2023 - 15:00 – 18:00

The exhibiton „loose ends“ showcases various aspects of artistic research. The works in the show include installations, sculptures, archive collections, and material experiments that utilize interdisciplinary research methods in the fields of medicine, glaciology, material sciences, and anthropology.

The title „loose ends“ refers to the open ends that arise in any creative process and the attempt of bringing those together. However, it also points to the intermediate state in which the researching artists are cons- tantly moving: The five artists describe their work as a process that they constantly scrutinize, reassess, and adjust, while oscillating between scientific studies and their artistic interpretations. Thus the exhibition seeks to involve the viewer in the search of non-hegemonic forms of knowledge, that emerge inbetween science and art.
